The first ever all amputee crew has begun an effort to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for injured service personnel.
 
The team of four British amputees, who served across the Armed Forces, set off from the Canary Islands and are expected to hit land in around six weeks in the Caribbean.
 
Forces TV's Cath Brazier spoke to serving Royal Marine Colour Sergeant Lee Spencer, 46, about what kind of adaptive training is required to complete the Atlantic Row as an amputee (below).
 
After coming through three operational tours of Afghanistan unscathed, Lee lost his right leg below the knee after being hit by flying debris as he was helping save the life of a crashed civilian motorist on the central reservation of the M3 in Surrey.
